It's Nearly Readathon Time!

I'm dusting off my blog in preparations for Dewey's Readathon tomorrow.  Yay!  I missed the last one and haven't had much time for reading of late.  I"m looking forward to devoting a day to reading and all things bookish.  

I was a devoted Shelfari user and since it's demise I've not had much of a presence on any book site.  I'm on both Librarything and Goodreads, although I've not participated much in groups yet.  Perhaps this weekend will get me reinvigorated to spend time on the social book sites.


I'm hoping to finish the two books I'm in the process of reading:


             via ebook:                              via audiobook

      The Cartographer of No Man's Land - P.S. Duffy                    The Rose and the Thorn - Michael J. Sullivan  


both are fairly long and I'm not currently even half way finished, so I may move on to other more readathon friendly books.


After perusing my TBR pile, I've narrowed my possible reads to twenty.  All less than 350 pages and from a variety of genre:  fantasy, young adult, mystery, non-fiction, romance and Austen inspired.   All are books I think may be fast reads that will hold my interest enough to keep me going through the day.


Here's a selection from my shortlist: 



The Sugar Queen - Sarah Addison Allen Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - J.K. Rowling,John Kerr Tiffany,Jack Thorne Death of an Outsider - M.C. Beaton The Talented Mr. Ripley - Patricia Highsmith The Rose of Fire - Carlos Ruiz Zafón Lucia, Lucia - Adriana Trigiani The Chocolatier's Wife - Cindy Lynn Speer Take the Cannoli: Stories From the New World - Sarah Vowell Building Mr. Darcy - Ashlinn Craven Murder at Longbourn - Tracy Kiely Sprig Muslin - Georgette Heyer Only Time Will Tell - Jeffrey Archer 


Judgment in Death - J.D. Robb      Magic Slays - Ilona Andrews  


 See you tomorrow!
